Bethesda Softworks and Zenimax Online Studios have shared a new trailer for The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset.
Featured above, the new video provides a nice walkthrough tour of the new locales within the new expansion, which is set on the High Elf island of Summerset.
Here’s a primer on the video:
In ESO: Summerset, players will explore the home of the High Elves for the first time since 1994’s The Elder Scrolls: Arena and discover an all-new land rich with exciting adventures, ominous shadows, and stunning locations in a zone larger than any Chapter before. With an epic main story, new abilities, returning villains, and a whole lot more, ESO: Summerset is an adventure not to be missed.
For the first time in history, the Isle of Summerset is opened to the outside world by the decree of Queen Ayrenn. Newcomers can explore lush forest, tropical lagoons, and ancient coral caves in this new zone that expands further than even that of Vvardenfell from last year’s Morrowind chapter. Seek out the mysterious Psijic Order, a secret society of mages on the island of Atraeum, for a new skill line and powerful abilities. Adventurers will also be able to climb Summerset’s highest peak to the city of Cloudrest, and band together to tackle enemies in a challenging 12-player trial.
